The Lusophonic Disappointment of Sciongrad is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.153 billion Scionites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Real. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, abortions are routinely performed in Sciongrad's hospitals, and almost all of Sciongrad's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime is totally unknown. Sciongrad's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is freedom of conscience, and its currency is the Shield.

Sciongrad is ranked 33rd in International Democratic Union and 81,516th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
